Rangala Natural Pool is a beautiful natural situated in Rangala in the central province of Sri Lanka. It’s one of the best natural pool in the knuckles area.
The road is beautiful on both sides. It has to go through tea estates, fields, mountains, and beautiful streams.
The water body is crystal clear and it is a great place to take colorful photographs. The pool is a part of the Kotaganga Stream, and that can also be viewed from the Kotaganga bridge. The deepest end of the pool is about 30 feet which makes it a dangerous pool to swim in.
Sri Dalada Maligawa
Just 17km from the Kandy Bungalow
The temple which carries a lot of value to Buddhists all over the world also has immense cultural value. Guarded and venerated by the ancient kings, this sacred tooth was once feared to have been burnt by the Portuguese, only for these claims to be falsified soon afterward. The architecture is of unique Kandyan architectural style with a combination of the unique style used to build “Dalada Mandira” the shrines which housed the Sacred Tooth Relic previously in other kingdoms.
The best time to visit the temple is for the evening Pujawa (ceremony). The traditional drum beats create an ambiance of anticipation and mystery, which is rather fitting considering that the tooth itself, is never seen.
